Are you considering starting your family, or adding to it, through adoption or surrogacy? That’s a major life decision, one that’s exciting…and it’s expensive. The average cost of an adoption can range from nearly free (if adopting out of foster care) to well into the six figures for surrogacy. In fact, there are so many different options that it can be dizzying. It helps to know your options.
We’ll discuss the various processes, the funds required and when, and all of the steps to take. Together, we can review the financial process, how long it will take to save, pitfalls to watch out for, as well as grants and assistance. For LGBTQ people, there may be additional considerations, such as impacts of tax laws.
